In between lectures on lesson planning, school etiquette, after school classes, summer camps, etc., we've had a few cultural experiences. During an introductory Taekwondo class, I broke my first board (not gonna lie...I'm a little proud of myself for that one). I really enjoyed the class and plan to look into taking lessons while I'm over here.

We still have three full days of orientation. On the last full day (Thursday, February 27), we'll be presenting lesson demonstrations in the morning and meeting with our district supervisors in the afternoon. That is when I will finally learn what school I will be in and the grade I will be teaching. On Friday, we'll be taken to our schools to meet our co-teachers. Our co-teachers will then take us to our apartments where we will finally start to settle in and make our new home. So far, so good! Looking forward to even more great experiences...
